Biography
Active for only a short period of time, 2001-2004, urban boy band B2K enjoyed a lot of success, including the number one single "Bump, Bump, Bump," and was the platform from which group member Omarion launched his solo career. Managed by Chris Stokes, whose other clients included Marques Houston, B2K was comprised of Omarion (born Omari Grandberry on November 12, 1984), Lil Fizz (Dreux Frederic; November 26, 1985), Raz-B (DeMario Thornton; June 13, 1985), and J-Boog (Jarell Houston; August 11, 1985). B2K's debut single, "Uh Huh," was released in late 2001, and their debut album, B2K, followed in 2002, spawning an additional two singles, "Gots ta Be" and "Why I Love You." Two of the three singles ("Uh Huh," "Gots ta Be") charted Top 40, propelling the album to number two and gold sales status. B2K's second album, Pandemonium! (2002), built upon that success, ultimately going platinum and spawning the chart-topping single "Bump, Bump, Bump." In January 2004 B2K appeared in the film You Got Served and also appeared on the film's soundtrack. Around this same time, Stokes announced the group's breakup, claiming internal disagreements for the split. Omarion meanwhile mounted a very popular solo career, debuting at number one with O (2005). ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
